Countdown to 2015 for maternal, newborn, and child survival: the 2008 report on tracking coverage of interventions
TLDR
Focused efforts will be needed to improve coverage of priority interventions, especially for priorities such as contraceptive services, care in childbirth, postnatal care, and clinical case management of illnesses in newborn babies and children. Expand
Countdown to 2015: tracking intervention coverage for child survival
TLDR
The first report of the Child Survival Countdown, a worldwide effort to monitor coverage of key child-survival interventions in 60 countries with the world's highest numbers or rates of child mortality, shows that tremendous efforts are urgently needed to achieve the MDG for child survival. Expand
Mind the gap: equity and trends in coverage of maternal, newborn, and child health services in 54 Countdown countries
TLDR
Despite most Countdown countries having made gradual progress since 1990, coverage gaps for key interventions remain wide and the pace of decline needs to be more than doubled to reach levels of coverage of these and other interventions needed in the context of MDG 4 and 5. Expand
Maternal Mortality for 181 Countries, 1980−2008: A Systematic Analysis of Progress Toward Millennium Development Goal 5
TLDR
The data show a substantial decline in maternal mortality from 1980 to 2008 and an apparent rise in MMR was found in the USA, Canada, and Norway although the investigators thought this could be explained in part by a revision in the International Classification of Disease that occurred during the study period. Expand
Countdown to 2015: tracking donor assistance to maternal, newborn, and child health
TLDR
Global estimates of official development assistance to maternal, newborn, and child health in 2003 and 2004 are provided, drawing on data reported by high-income donor countries and aid agencies to the Organisation for Economic Development and Cooperation. Expand
Levels and trends in under-5 mortality, 1990–2008
TLDR
The Inter-agency Group for Child Mortality Estimation (IGME) aims to source and share data on child mortality, to improve and harmonise estimation methods across partners, and to produce consistent estimates on the levels and trends in child mortality worldwide. Expand
Countdown to 2015: assessment of donor assistance to maternal, newborn, and child health between 2003 and 2006
TLDR
Donor resource tracking should be continued to help hold donors accountable and encourage targeting of resources to countries with greatest needs, including countries with higher under-5 mortality. Expand
Neonatal, postneonatal, childhood, and under-5 mortality for 187 countries, 1970–2010: a systematic analysis of progress towards Millennium Development Goal 4
TLDR
This is the first study that uses Gaussian process regression to estimate child mortality, and this technique has better out-of-sample predictive validity than do previous methods and captures uncertainty caused by sampling and non-sampling error across data types. Expand
Maternal mortality for 181 countries, 1980–2008: a systematic analysis of progress towards Millennium Development Goal 5
TLDR
Although only 23 countries are on track to achieve a 75% decrease in MMR by 2015, countries such as Egypt, China, Ecuador, and Bolivia have been achieving accelerated progress and substantial, albeit varied, progress has been made towards MDG 5. Expand
